are you refer to the corium as fuel fragments? and are you saying corium can't melt thru concrete?
yeah we are seeing how well that's working out
so the Chernobyl level of ground contamination 30km from the plant is a local issue?
do you really think the banana dose equivalent even compares...??
Based on the opinion of someone who has modeled such phenomenon, (had you bothered to go to the reference) .. no, it wont.
TEPCO official Junichi Matsumoto described the “possible meltdown”, comparing it to “a state in which molten fuel accumulates like lava.”
Corium, also called fuel containing material (FCM) or lava-like fuel containing material (LFCM), is a lava-like molten mixture of portions of nuclear reactor core, formed during a nuclear meltdown, the most severe class of a nuclear reactor accident. It consists of nuclear fuel, control rods, structural materials from the affected parts of the reactor, products of their chemical reaction with air, water and steam, and, in case the reactor vessel is breached, molten concrete from the floor of the reactor room.
I am sure your many years of experience in the field coupled with your credentials and education would make people take your opinions very seriously.
I must have missed the explosion at Fukushima that sent its reactor lid and its contents thousands of feet into the air

Really it's simple (honestly I don't know why I'm bothering), as you were so kind as to reiterate in your reply to me, you consider it an invalid argument philosophy unlike a valid argument something with current scientific data and approval . [f.y.i. that counts for two on the list ]
and I am sure you know what my credentials and education are right
what does that have to do with the contamination levels?????? or are you saying that it can't happen because it didn't explode just like the Chernobyl accident?? must be all those readings from Japan are wrong then..
Have a nice day...and drink lots of milk!
